I finished this up today by making a video for Youtube and the full-size still for my Flickr gallery.
I'm glad so many people found enjoyment watching this. Now I must search for another new place to investigate.
I made a color image too, but it's really not all that different from what was done before I came along: https://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2008/snr0509/
Ah well, sometimes I find a new take on things, and other times I realize I'm just rehashing something very similarly.
I started looking at these data because I wondered if the clumps seen in this composite image were real or just noise. Turns out they're real. https://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2010/snr0509/
Found an HST supernova remnant I'd previously processed and added Chandra data to it. A bit easier when half the work was already done earlier. Trying to find some other-than-SNR targets to do, but SNRs really are the best.
ESA released a version of this nebula that showed a wider view including NGC 1850, a huge cluster of stars at the bottom of the frame. All that starlight! I actually use one of the narrowband filters as a partial luminosity layer to remove some starlight.
Garbage, with apologies for all birdsite references. I use a cross-posting app.
